Nicklaus’ Long Bay Design Engages Players From Start to Finish


What do golfers most often look for when considering their next round? A design pleasing to the eye? An inviting feel and attentive staff? Perhaps superb conditions? Well at Long Bay Golf Club, golfers will look no further to find just what they are looking for. Under the watchful eye of the Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus designed an exciting layout that will engage players from the first tee shot all the way to their final putt on the eighteenth green. No stranger to the long ball, Nicklaus starts the round with four long holes including the par five second with approach bunkers in play and the slight dogleg left par four…fourth. Complementary to these longer holes are the shorter par threes found at Long Bay…all postcard-worthy…with stunning visuals and a perfect inclusion of water, bunkers and distance. Long Bay’s signature hole starts the back nine on the par four tenth. This island fairway surrounded by an expansive waster area bunker creates a remarkable look with rolling mounding to the left and a perched narrow green enveloped by daunting valleys and green side bunkers well below the putting surface. Players must corral their courage to take on the short, but daunting island green par three thirteenth with perfect distance and accuracy a must in order to find the putting surface for a chance at par…or even the rare birdie…Opened in 1989, Long Bay continues to mature with indigenous hardwoods, native holly trees and classic Carolina pines that define the sightlines of each hole. The low country plantation-style clubhouse is nestled amongst a tree canopy overlooking the finishing 18th…one of the top closing holes in all of Myrtle Beach…a strong dogleg right around the lake down the entire right side. And as four-and-a-half star Golf Digest recipient…expectations continue to bet met…and exceeded…at Long Bay Golf Club. Come take on the Golden Bear challenge at Long Bay Golf Club…a “can’t miss” experience in just minutes from Myrtle Beach in Longs, South Carolina!
